Defqon.1 2013 – in photos

Photographing Defqon.1 in Sydney’s always been a fun and challenging gig, expectations are high and there’s a lot to go on making it hard to capture moments that stand out. Here’s a small collection of shots which I think demonstrate the atmosphere from the day. Still getting a full album ready to upload onto my photography page.

Embrace – Embrace (Ferry Corsten Fix)

This is definitely a less known tune and to be honest I never knew what it was called until it came up on di.fm and I instantly recognised it. First heard this in 2008 during one of the best nights I’ve ever had, Armin Only 2008 at the Hordern Pavillion.

I still remember the moment it was dropped and seriously chills went down my spine, it’s had that 3am/late night kinda vibe that just really brings you back into it. Continue reading Embrace – Embrace (Ferry Corsten Fix)

The Thillseekers – this is real trance

Jimmy has enlightened me that The Thrillseekers will be on their way down for a club gig on Friday the 13th of September. To be honest, initially wasn’t immediately in (as it’s the week after Protoculture, Max Graham and Lange), however he also linked me to the following set below.

New theme and I’m ready to blog more

Was getting sick of my current theme as I felt it didn’t really reflect what my blog was and what I wanted with it. I looked around but nothing really appealed off the bat, but I eventually chose this one called ‘Expound’ and added some of my own little touches. I like being able to have a header and background image, something I can easily change to spruce up the page.

With a new theme in place, I really need to get back into blogging, I’m contemplating having a camera around with me everywhere so I can capture more of the things that go on around. I also have a whole heap of catching up to do

From yesteryear – Chicane – Autumn Tactics (Thrillseeker remix)

Something a little more down-tempo, perhaps a bit too much for a Friday but listening to the ASOT 600 compilation is bringing so many classic tunes back and this is one of my faves from yesteryear (2000 to be exact).

It features the lovely vocals of Justine Suissa, a name that’s been synonymous with trance for decades.

Funny or Die take on Daft Punk’s The Collaborators

A pretty good parody of ‘The Collaborators’ series which run through the various names contributing to Daft Punk’s upcoming album. Funny or Die have their own collaborator – Andrew the Pizza guy.

The Collaborators: Nile Rodgers – Daft Punk – Random Access Memories

Part 3 of ‘The Collaborators’ featuring Nile Rodgers discusses his musical background and influences and what makes ‘his sound’. Gives a deep insight into his style as being ‘voice-leading’ and leaves your imagination wild thinking about how this could mesh with Daft Punk’s upcoming artist album.

Hot tip, watch past the credits at the end ;).
